Three professors to attend ACM’s SAIL seminar in July
Three Ripon College professors have been selected to participate in a 10-day seminar in Silicon Valley, California, in July. They are: Mollie Oblinger, associate professor of art; Timothy Reed, associate professor of Spanish; and Henrik Schatzinger, associate professor of politics and government.
“Silicon Valley as an Innovation Ecosystem” is the fifth in the series Seminars in Advanced Interdisciplinary Learning (SAIL) sponsored by Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM).
Silicon Valley is a symbol of high-tech companies and products that have changed our daily lives, and a center of innovation that thrives on its networks of entrepreneurs, designers, programmers, corporations and start-ups, and universities and research institutes.
Seminar participants will explore the connections between innovation and the liberal arts, what makes Silicon Valley’s “innovation ecosystem” so powerful, and cultural traits or innovative practices found in Silicon Valley that can be applied on ACM campuses.
